In a statement, the Tunceli Governor's Office said Fuat Akkaya, codenamed Fuat Fikri, was identified among five terrorists killed during operations conducted in Ovacik district in eastern Tunceli province on May 18.

Zeynal Kucuk, codenamed Sevger, was the other PKK terrorist on wanted list killed in Tunceli.

Akkaya and Kucuk were mentioned in the grey category of the Interior Ministry's list of wanted terrorists.
